Options for LGBT Individuals and Couples

There are many different types of families, and Emory Reproductive Center is committed to helping all people build theirs. We are experienced in working with LGBT patients, both single and coupled.

We work with men who are pursuing egg donation and gestational surrogacy (if the gestational carrier is known), providing the sperm collection and preparation, insemination of eggs and development of embryos, and embryo selection and transfer.

We help women select a sperm bank and work with them on establishing a pregnancy. We perform both anonymous and directed donor intrauterine inseminations; for lesbian couples undergoing IVF, they may decide to have one partner provide the eggs while the other carries the pregnancy.

For transgender patients, we are available to discuss fertility preservation options prior to transition.

Not only do our patients benefit from our experience and success with advanced reproductive techniques, we also provide referrals and resources to attorneys and legal experts who may be necessary on this journey.

Please make an appointment with one of our physicians to learn how Emory Reproductive Center can play a role in building your family.
